Emergency dentists and fellow members of oral healthcare staff have applied to receive funding from a scheme launched by the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF).
Carried out as part of its National Smile Month campaign, the BDHF has announced plans to inject increased investments into educating the public about healthy teeth.
The £100,000 donation, provided by the Wrigley's Tooth Fairy Fund, will go towards projects in a bid to promote oral healthcare across the country.
Qualifying organisations will be given the opportunity to outline their plans for educating people of all ages if they were to receive the additional money.
Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the BDHF, said: "The feedback from oral health educators has been very positive and for many organisations it provides an opportunity to fund projects which have been affected by limited funding."
Wrigley's recently revealed that 95 per cent of people regularly fail to take action to protect their teeth and gums after eating lunch.
